Oreo has been with us since May 5, 1989. As of this moment, my mother is walking in the room to tell the vet to put my sweet childhood kitty to sleep. She's very upset and she called me about an hour ago to tell me they took him in this morning for an ear infection, and they gased him to clean his ear. He had a difficult time coming out and when they took him home, he had been breathing very hard. She called me about 20 minutes ago, and she said that he either had a stroke or has cancer. The vet told her that for him being 16, the prognosis isn't good. We talked about it together and decided we have 16 wonderful years together with him and we will always remember those years. I am out of town, and I probably wouldn't get home in time to say goodbye I told her that it was best to let him go because he is crying right now and is in a lot of pain. She said she would give him and big hug and kiss for me. This hurts very much, please say a little prayer for Oreo, will you? May he cross the bridge safely and look back at us with those kitten eyes and know that we will always love him.
